Call to Arms

Young men have been running off to war since men filled the valleys and rubbed shoulders with another sort.
They have been called by men of power with voices of fervor and admonition.
They have been promised honor and glory and the reward of the righteous.
They have been taught to hate and kill and set fire to the land.
They have been average men, not murderers.
They have been seeking meaning in their lives.
They have been mourning the loss of their homeland, their bright futures, the love of family.
Will you also join the fight and kill other young men?
You seek to protect the innocent, but when you fight, kill the real enemies of men:
  • prejudice,
  • injustice,
  • poverty,
  • intolerance.
